We can use several noninvasive cardiac imaging modalities in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD), and we have investigated these technologies in many clinical trials. Some have already become regular examinations in the assessment of CAD among large-scale hospitals. We can detect not only coronary artery anatomic stenosis but also functional myocardial ischemia according to the information provided by these methods. Based on the evaluation of versatile noninvasive cardiac imaging modalities, risk stratification and treatment management help improve the prognosis of patients with CAD. In this review, we summarize these techniques in the evaluation of myocardial ischemia in terms of principles, evidence, advantages, and limitations.
